Best Steam Cleaner for Your Skin
Natural and For All Skin Types
The best steam cleaner is a simple routine that can do natural wonders for most skin types.
Facial steam cleaning is not just for oily skin, but can also benefit dry or combination skin, although it is generally not recommended for extremely sensitive skin.
Using steam to cleanse your face is a simple, age old technique - that is often overlooked in our modern world of cosmetics and beauty treatments - and can help with a range of skin problems.
This is a wonderfully ancient method for removing dirt and pollution from your skin.
As it also removes natural oils it is generally seen as most beneficial for oily skin.
However if you do not overuse this technique for dry or combination skin it can also be of great benefit as it opens pores and helps combat
How Often to Use Steam
DRY OR AGING SKIN
Use only occasionally - probably about once a month would be plenty.
Only steam for a short time of about 2-3 minutes.
Approximately once a week is okay for Combination Skin.
Steam for a shorter time of about 2-3 minutes.
Once or twice each week is generally beneficial.
Oily skin can withstand a longer time of about 6-8 minutes.
As with all treatments you need to monitor both the positive and negative (drying of the skin) effects and adjust your routine accordingly.
